Tag Heuer Autavia 2006 "Jo Siffert Re-Issue".

A brilliant modern Autavia for the collector. First launched in 2003 these re-issues harped back to Heuer's early days. Jo Siffert, then an up and coming racing driver used to wheel and deal on the grid to fund his motor racing. His great friendship with Jack Heuer enabled him to sell Heuer watches to nearly every driver and follower of the day; he was even known to have sold them Porsches also. This spawned the sponsorship [that we all know to this day]. This classic design is a calibre 11 automatic chronograph with white dial, black sub-dials with blue accents. Complete with box, outer box and cards. These were only available for a few years and are now acquiring cult status.
